We still have a few more workshops running as 2018 draws to a close. We have two special craft events in December and bronzeworking courses can be booked through us by arrangement. You can find out more about our craft and bronze workshops down the  page. If you would like to know even more or arrange a workshop, please email or call 02392598838.

Next year we will have a whole new raft of courses – some firm favourites and some fresh offers. We will have a variety of metalworking, blacksmithing, and jewellery courses, plus flint knapping, ancient skills, woodworking, traditional crafts, herbal lore,  and more. Immerse yourself in the ancient world and learn some of the crafts and techniques that our ancestors used to make everything they needed. This is a unique learning environment where you will be surrounded by buildings from 5000 years’ of human history from the New Stone Age to the Saxon period. Our workshops will give you an unforgettable hands-on experience of the past.

Winter Crafts



Pagan decorations. December 18th. £25.00. Because our first offering of the Pagan decoration workshop was so popular, we have a second offering! Join Victoria and Rachel for some Yule season craft. Create beautiful decorations for the home using natural materials. You’ll be guided in the symbolism and magic of pagan decorations to help celebrate the winter solstice and the turning of the cycle of the year. All materials will be provided for you to create beautiful decorations to take home.
